to say yes. ronald reagan and i'll say it, i voted to impeach the guy, bill clinton. bill clinton would always figure out that when republicans said something he agreed with he would tell people. hey, you know that's a good idea. they are right. and i guess as a politician that's what i don't understand about republicans these days. i always look for an excuse to agree with my political opponents. if they say something i agree with, i embrace it because i know that's going to give me a lot more credibility when i start talking about the debt, when i start talking about tax cuts, when i start talking about cutting regulations. if i can find something on gun control that doesn't offend my sensibilities on the second amendment, that are consistent with what reagan said and scalia said, that's great oil embrace that. i'll win votes from independent swing voters and then i win on the deficit. >> you can -- >> on cutting regulations. where it matters. >> you can still be a principled conservative. this is all music to my ears. joe i got to take a break. stay with me. we'll have you back. i wa

and ultimately that helped bill clinton win a second term. i think the president is counting on the idea that he has the high ground, he's proven he had the high ground in the election, and he's going to make theme pay if they will not negotiate with him. it is a very clear standoff and we're going to see who blinks. >> all right, john, thanks so much. john harwood in the east room of the white house, wrapping up the president's final news conference of this first term. busy day on wall street today. steve liesman is at the breaking news desk with some headlines coming from mr. lockhart of the fed. steve? >> yeah, scott, let me tell you what dennis lockhart of the fed is saying and i'll give you the context of why this could be important for fed policy. lockhart saying new asset purchase program is not qe incontinuety. that open ended does not mean without bounds. he's concerned about growth of the fed's balance sheet, and at some point he said qe could hurt market functioning and financial stability. among those things that could hurt is what the fed says every year to treasury from the earning
